An Evening With Carl Wilkens & a documentary on Roméo Dallaire

Hi everyone,

We have a couple of very exciting events coming up next week.  On Friday Oct 9th, we are screening Shake Hands With The Devil, a documentary that follows General Roméo Dallaire during his first return trip to Rwanda, on the 10th anniversary of the genocide, revisiting the killing fields that still haunt him today.  It is a gut-wrenching extraordinary account by a primary witness.

Then on Saturday Oct 10th, we are hosting An Evening With Carl Wilkens.  Carl was the only American who chose to remain in Rwanda when the genocide began in 1994.  He is a warm, heartfelt speaker and we are honored to have him come visit us in Orange County.

We hope you will join us for both events.  All information is below.  We promise you will have a moving and inspiring experience.

Join us to hear Carl’s personal and chilling first-hand account of life for the people of Rwanda as their country collapsed. The evening will highlight what we as global citizens have in common, how our commonalities are so much greater than our differences and what that means for our response to violence – from bullying to genocide.

In 1993, General Dallaire was thrown into a country with only minimal briefing, leading a force that included ill equipped, poorly trained soldiers, some of whom did not want to be there.  Unsupported by UN headquarters, Dallaire and his remaining handful of soldiers were incapable of stopping the killing. This documentary follows Dallaire during his first return trip to Rwanda, early in April 2004 on the 10th anniversary of the genocide, revisiting the killing fields that still haunt him today.
